  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I request a $40.00 "call-out" fee to cover fuel regardless of recovery status. Due to the never ending variables in these sort of searches, I will allow you to choose a "reward" based on efforts and value. Basically, offer what you deem fair and what you can afford.

Search Types

I have a multitude of detector options and would be glad to search any parks, beaches, yards, and water for your valuables.

Search Locations

Contra Costa and Alameda County and I'd be glad to travel within the greater Bay Area.

Brendon Chapman's Bio

I got my first taste of metal detecting as a member of a Volunteer Bay Area Search and Rescue Team. There, we systematically searched crime scenes for evidence such as bullet casings and slugs, knives, guns, and other objects of interest.

It was not until recently that my passion for history and lost treasures turned into a hobby often involving metal detecting. I love to find old coins and relics and research there history.

I will make every effort to locate your lost valuables. Please call early, the longer an item is missing the less likely it is to be recovered for the owner. Also, I would love to include you in our efforts. I find that it helps you take your mind off of a stressful situation and adds additional resources to the search. Please ask how you can assist in your search.

  • He clearly knows what he is doing and is an expert at locating lost jewelry... (2022)

    Item

    My fiance accidentally flung her engagement ring into a thick, brushy area in our front yard while trying to remove it. At first, we thought it would be easy to find, but after several hours of searching without success, it felt like a hopeless cause.

    While searching for ideas on the Internet in desperation, I happened to stumble across theringfinders.com and saw that Brendon was their local operative for our area. When I contacted Brendon, he was very willing and eager to help!

    It was very easy to set up an appointment, and he was at our house looking for the ring within a couple of days. When he arrived, he was able to find the ring in about 10 minutes!!

    He clearly knows what he is doing and is an expert at locating lost jewelry. Before contacting Brendon, we were just about to purchase a replacement ring that wouldn't have had the same sentimental value as the original. I'm so glad, we found Brendon instead! THANK YOU, BRENDON!

  • I highly recommend Brandon – he is AWESOME!! (2022)

    Item

    While we had not lost hope to find the ring we were losing steam and feeling defeated. We found Brandon, extremely courteous and eager to help. He knew time was of the essence and fit us in same day to literally dig through the trash. It was gross, grimy and smelly, but he was on a mission. We were going to find that ring and boy, he sure did!! There were screams, tears, laughs and tons of high fives – to say that the owners were happy is an extreme understatement. There was obvious disbelief, which made the find that much sweeter. Brandon is AMAZING and has tons of experience and great tools to help. He never showed irritation with digging through yucky trash, was extremely positive, very easy going and super fun. Brandon will always be the one I call for trash digging for my owners and anyone else that asks. I highly recommend Brandon – he is AWESOME!!

  • I highly recommend Brendon, and the others who helped me find him…The Ring Finders site (2022)

    Item

    Brendan’s willingness and promptness to drive more than an hour to the site, through traffic (valley folks heading to the beach for cooler temps in addition to afternoon traffic) his detective skills and tools, and most importantly his kindness and generosity of time and effort with no guarantees of success. The ring was lost the afternoon before. Thankfully we were able to bless him for his efforts, skills, time and gas. I enjoyed our visit as we waited for Hilary and Fernandes to arrive after their works, to thank him in person . I highly recommend Brendon, and the others who helped me find him…The Ring Finders site, Marshall, and Jes.

  • Thank you Brendon for finding the ring which will allow it to continue being passed down for generations. (2022)

    Item

    Thank you Brendon! Thirty years ago our son received a gold ring from his Godmother and was passing it down to his Son. We were all heartbroken when informed it had flown off his finger in the backyard. We searched without success when I googled how to find lost rings and came across “theringfinders.” Brendon responded promptly and showed up the next day and found the ring in minutes. He was timely and courteous and we appreciated the explanation of how he would search the yard and what the different metal detector sounds would mean. Thank you Brendon for finding the ring which will allow it to continue being passed down for generations.
